The words that flutter

Tell me, what is important to you? I can list off many things which have no significance to me; no meaning in my life. I'm certain many people can do this. But think for a moment; what really means something to you? What do you truly seek out in someone? Take any given situation - a crowded elevator, a ballpark, home alone in your room - who would you want to be with and why? This poem attempts to explain what means most me. Why don't you try and figure it out for yourself?

I do not care what car you drive or where you live.
If you know someone who knows someone who knows someone.
If your clothes are this years cutting edge.
If your trust fund is unlimited.
If you are A-list, B-list, or never-heard-of-you list.
I only care about the words that flutter from your mind.
They are the only thing you truly own.
The only thing I will remember you by.
I will not fall in love with your bones and skin.
I will not fall in love with the places you have been.
I will not fall in love with anything but the words that flutter from your extraordinary mind.
